Corporate social responsibility

Together we are committed to doing more

We are part of McKesson Europe, a leading company in the healthcare sector with strong brands across 13 European countries. Corporate Responsibility is vitally important for us, our customers, patients and partners.

Our responsibility

Our purpose is to deliver better health for everyone. That’s what drives all McKesson employees around the world. And that is what drives our Corporate Responsibility Strategy.

Taking a considerate approach

We are aware that changing our business to become greener, more sustainable or better for communities isn’t the end of the story. For every action, there is a reaction and we take a considerate approach to make sure that everything we do is the best possible solution for the communities we serve.

  • We will always consider the wide ranging impacts of our decisions and the affect they have on the communities we serve.
  • We will always report on our CSR activity with honesty and transparency.
  • We won’t claim to have all the answers or be overly triumphant. We know there’s always more to do.
  • We will always consult with our customers, colleagues and partners to make sure we have considered as many perspectives as possible.

Product quality and patient safety

Because the safety and well-being of our customers are always our top priority.

Eco-efficient operations and transportation

We are constantly reviewing and optimising our processes to minimise our environmental impact.

Better health for our employees and communities

We are a team of healthcare experts and together we are committed to helping people live healthier lives.

United against dementia

We’re committed to helping those who live with dementia, as well as their families and carers. That’s why we partner with Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer Scotland.

Dementia is a debilitating disease that affects over 850,000 people in the UK alone. Over 24,000 of our colleagues are Dementia Friends, which means they have a better understanding of how they can help support dementia patients and their carers. We consider it an integral part of our training, and we wear the forget-me-not logo with pride. From helping dementia patients get the right medicine to providing help to a carer, our teams demonstrate their support for the initiative every day.

Since 2015, we’ve raised over half a million pounds to fund dementia research projects. We’ve held bake sales, dressed up, even climbed mountains and cycled across Europe for the cause. We help connect customers to useful services by promoting Alzheimer’s Society resources in our LloydsPharmacy Healthy Living Zones.

Our partnership with Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer Scotland reflects our corporate vision of better health for all. It also truly resonates with our ICARE values and we’re proud to give our time and resources to contribute to the search for a cure.
